I've been playing Vanguard pretty heavily since Tuesday, and I have to say that the game is extremely fun. The difficulty level is through the roof compared to current MMO's, and the variety in play style is refreshing.
The world is HUGE, and beautiful with maxed out settings on my 1080p 42" screen. I haven't found any limitations so far that require a trip to the cash shop, so it seems to be the perfect F2P.
Too bad I can't play. The bugs from 3 years ago are still there, and falling through the earth, unresponsive combat, and lagging out to charater selection are all too common. I can get past the terrible quest tracker ( I can always read the quest!), I can get past the awkward combat delay (not lag generated, just built that way), and I can get past the so hard as to be ridiculous group quests if the game would allow me to get past them. I would love nothing more than to just deal with minor flaws and look forward to patches like I did in the Vanilla WoW days, but I can't do any of that if I can't play the game!
It is so frustraing to spend half an hour trudging through some group quest, hoping to god I don't die and have to start over only to have the game lag so bad it disconnects me and rolls back my quest progress, or even worse come back and have a million mobs spawned on me.
I hope with the influx of cash, SOE develops this game quickly because I REALLY want to play. I just dont want to become invested in a 5 year old beta.
